**Reiny**, Sunday, November 25, 2012 at 12:38pmYou have a right-angled triangle so we can use the formula

(1/2) base x height

Since you want the answer as a common fraction, I will assume that you need "exact" values.

you state that BC = \sqrt{3}

I will assume that is meant to say √3

so cos75 =base/√3

base = √3cos75

and sin75 = height/√3

height = √3sin75

area = (1/2)(√3sin75)(√3cos75)

= (3/2)sin75cos75)

(recall sin 2A = 2sinAcosA)

= (3/2)(2sin75cos75)/2

= (3/4) sin 150

sin 150 = sin30 ---- one of the basic identities

area = (1/3) sin150

= (3/4)sin30

= (3/4)(1/2) = 3/8
